Reviews

This beautiful book traces the changing relationship between humans and wolves through the ages. A captivating book about wolves. Text and magnificent pictures tell of their behavior, life cycle and history with man. Beautifully illustrated... Grambo depicts this dynamic animal as it is, an integral part of the animal kingdom. �Grambo's� text is a great read, but Cox's photos tell much of the story here... These creatures are beautiful. -- John Mark Eberhart "Kansas City Star" (12/04/2005) Shifting effortlessly between science and myth... Grambo explores all sides of the wolf, from both lupine and human perspectives.--Nancy Bent"Booklist" (02/01/2006) There's much to learn from this gloriously "flickable" and readable book. Beautiful. Practical. Passionate. My subtitles for "Wolf."--Julia Bohanna, UK Wold Conservation Trust"BBC Wildlife" (09/01/2008) This beautifully illustrated, thoughtful book explores the intricate relationship between wolves and people.--Nicole M. Robertson"Oakland Press" (01/01/2006) Comprehensive study of the wolf... dwells especially on the complex relationship between man and wolf... masterful photography.--Joy McDonell"Canadian Camera" (12/01/2005) Shifting effortlessly between science and myth, with sociological, anthropological, and ethnological stops along the way, Grambo explores all sides of the wolf, from both lupine and human perspectives. The many illustrations, which include Cox's images of wolves in the wild, reinforce the premise of the text.--Nancy Bent"Booklist" (02/01/2006) Well structured, colorful and engrossing book... wide appeal to all readers who are curious about wolves.--Robert Smith"Science Books and Films" (03/01/2006) The real delights are the photos: close-ups of handsome faces, sweet pictures of mamma wolves and their cubs, and dynamic shots of the animals in action or getting together for a good howl.--Peggy Earle"Norfolk Vigninian-Pilot" (12/21/2005) Comprehensive study of the wolf not only explores the evolution and behavior... but dwells especially on the complex relationship between man and wolf... masterful photography.--Joy McDonell"Canadian Camera" (12/01/2005) [Grambo's] text is a great read, but Cox's photos tell much of the story here... These creatures are beautiful.--John Mark Eberhart"Kansas City Star" (12/04/2005) Grambo weaves the history of wolves and humans, complimented by illustrations and Daniel Cox's photographs in a nicely done package.--Sharon Wootton"Olympia Olympian" (11/27/2005) A new bible for wolf-lovers... Any lover of all things lupine is in safe hands, and will certainly enjoy the wonderful accompanying images by award-winning photographer Daniel J. Cox, who has a most delicious and painterly sense of colour and composition.... What makes this book most desirable and unique is that, with a meticulous seamstress's eye, Grambo interweaves biological facts with a colourful patchwork of lupine legends, fascinating artefacts (an illustration of a prowling wolf from a 13th century bestiary), and relevant quotes and songs.... There's much to learn from this gloriously "flickable" and readable book. Beautiful. Practical. Passionate. My subtitles for "Wolf."--Julia Bohanna, UK World Conservation Trust"BBC Wildlife" (09/01/2008)
